block long district would decrease the diversity of use in the district and limit other neighborhood serving uses in the neighborhood. this concern is the reason financial institutions require conditional use authorization in this district and the reason that a similar request for sterling bank in 2005 in this location was disapproved by the commission. and conditions in the neighborhood have not changed. last october the [speaker not understood] restaurant burned down. local merchants association and other groups used the restaurant as a meeting place. sterling bank has offered to allow merchants and others to use the 545 square foot rear portion in this space now occupied by the bank office as a community meeting room. the need for such a community meeting space will decrease when the [speaker not understood] is reconstructed. the department has received letters of support for the project from the greater west portal merchants association, greater west portal neighborhood association and three additional letters of support from area merchants. the department recommends disapproval

are proposing. that would be useful. thanks. >> commissioner antonini. >> thank you and talk about this 11th street corridor and i earlier stated my preference for what i believe is wmuo which is option 3b and one of the reasons it would also allow office and presumably allow retail in that area which contributes to day time uses that would help the vitality of the area because if you have a lot of entertainment uses typically clubs they don't come into play until late at night and allowing some office and retail and day time commercial things would keep the district moving throughout the day too. we had a discussion while we were having a break there on the gas lamp in san diego and -- i'm not trying to hint this is what we're looking to create here but they do have an area where a concentration of dining establishments and some clubs are easily walkable because you often have to be cabbing from one part of san francisco to another to go to different scplais and we have a lot of walkable areas and like san diego there are few walkable areas and why it's concentrated there. the other quest
time uses that would help the vitality of the area because if you have a lot of entertainment uses typically clubs they don't come into play until late at night and allowing some office and retail and day time commercial things would keep the district moving throughout the day too. we had a discussion while we were having a break there on the gas lamp in san diego and -- i'm not trying to hint this is what we're looking to create here but they do have an area where a concentration of dining establishments and some clubs are easily walkable because you often have to be cabbing from one part of san francisco to another to go to different scplais and we have a lot of walkable areas and like san diego there are few walkable areas and why it's concentrated there. the other question i had and somebody brought this up. is there any call for metering and housing? i think we may have asked that last week and i was assured there wasn't but somebody brought that up. >> in the plan, in the area plan that would be adopted in the general plan there is a policy that says that we should establi
things and i encourage us to have that debate as soon as possible so i would like to hear it on the 29th. >> commissioner borden. >> yeah. i think the issue here is the fact if the supervisor can move forth without the input and we want input by that time we need to stick with the 29 because we don't have to and we heard from members of public they want the conversation here at planning. they feel it's the appropriate place to have some of the discussions and i agree exactly with that that we need to have the discussion here so that people and figure out if we need more workshops, more follow up. i think there is a lot to be discussed here. i like when we took supervisor chu's legislation and look it apart and had a number of hearings. we didn't just continue it out. we had a bunch of hearings. i don't think the decisions being made about what vote we would or wouldn't take on the 29th but i think it makes sense to hear the legislation before it gets to the board of supervisors and have our input. >> commissioner hillis. >> i just like to request too as part of the next hearing perh
that we continue beyond the 29th of november partially because the package that was given to us is significantly incomplete. i'm not just commenting on the way it was listed in the public noticing but i would like to address that in order to fully understand it. stakeholder groups need to be contacted and talked to. the commission itself i think just needs for the clarity compare the writings of 2006, 2010 and 2012 and really evaluate whether addressing a administrative correction but i don't think it is. i received at a minimum up to 10 accordance on the matter. >> >> and by lawyers and all of the comment his the tone and message of consistency and i have to take quite seriously. it's not just about me being a commissioner and out smart everybody and the public needs to inform me about what the law says and what is going to happen under eir and ceqa law and i believe there are serious shortcuts being made here and addition to finding document full of vague language, innuendo, and conflikz of terms and terms are exchanged and don't mean anything. planning, planning commiss

to take that policy proposal that i just put before you and describe what it means to us. in 2011 it was a wet year. there would have been no additional rps purchases needed to comply with the law. the calendar year we're in right now, 2012 is more of a dry year. and we have some plant outages. we project that we will need to procure rps resources to meet the acts requirements. they will be small so they're going to be under the 5% of retail sales limit. we're forecasting each month to monitor and evaluate the need. we expect we will need to procure renewable energy credits equivalent to 50,000 megawatt hours before january 1st, 2013. -- to comply with this law * . we expect that will cost us about $50,000. the act also allows for cost limitations, as i mentioned, if exceptions. the exceptions briefly are that our obligation is capped at the same level as other publicly owned utilities. so, for example, the requirement for publicly owned utilities is 20% of your retail sales need to be met by rps compliant resources. in 2012 that rises to 33% by 2020. we may delay compliance due t
to parking reduction because of the situation that we really want to commit to further use of transit and fewer cars in the area and i have to say it because i think philosophy how we look at this district has changed so it's kind of a give and takei am -- i am fine with the plan and the increase and correct me if it's the other way and that's within the parameters here and that remains up to the discretion of the developer if things and i don't think there is reason to believe it's the older project but what was pointed out before us is the original project because it has the flexibility to do that and the other thing -- this should have been brought up during the earlier hearing, but one other thing that might be advisable and i don't know if i saw it in the plans but i'm not sure if there are plans for retail in this particular structure. i think we mainly have townhouses on the ground floor but hopefully within the rincon hill footprint of all the different towers approved and built there are some that will contain a little bit of retail and one of the easiest ways for people not
's question, i still don't think i understand like the lottery process. when a lottery is used. walk us through quickly. i built some units, i'm a developer. i have three bmr units, i'm ready to go. what happens? >> you get your units priced, fill the form out and i send you pricing for your units and this is what your maximum prices are. you submit a marketing plan and that marketing plan says you have to publicize your units for a 28-day period which is moving to 45 for ownership, 28 for rental. and that means we post it on our website, we send out an e-mail alert to 10,000 people that have signed up through the city. the developer, the sponsor publishes in five local venues, can be craig's list, local papers, that hits a demographic group in save. and they have to do a weekend paper over two weekends. we'll have info sessions if there are two or more units. we leave most of it. we show up and talk about the program. it's mostly questions about how to qualify. they talk about the units. and then they're collecting applications throughout that process themselves and there are applicati

people, i'm sure there are plenty of those uses 234 western soma. i think most of the people we've heard from are people who have legal nonconforming uses * that currently are in areas that don't permit office because right now under the current zoning you can't really have office anywhere. or you have people who want to do new office, which obviously that is a very sensitive issue in western soma because very high demand for office space. but it's not the kind of space -- not the kind of use they want to have to be prevalent throughout the plan area. we have the wmuo district on townsend street. we are permitting one floor of office space in the rcd -- >> right, already existing office. >> right. >> on top of that looking at now you have these article 11 buildings which i imagine many of which have existing office in them because they were allowed to today, now in the future won't be able to. so, looking at how we treat -- even if we choose to call out that category in a separate manner, i just think we need to figure it out because, you know, and actually put [speaker not understood]
on the environment, but just the cost factors. but i think you can use a report like this to be a fool and help us to make our decisions, but also formulate city policy to address some of the shortcomings. * a tool >> absolutely. >> sugaya. >> yes. is there any correlation between what we're calling p-d-r on page 16 and manufacturing which is back on page 40? >> good question. >> because it seems like -- i have to just finish my observation. >> sure. >> because on p-d-r we're down over the 2002-11 years by 26%. it went up slightly in the middle years there, in 2006 and '07. if you go back to page 40 and look at the manufacturing totals, it's pretty surprising that in 2011 we have more information jobs than we did back in 2002. so, you don't have to answer that question now. but if, you know, i don't know if p-d-rs totally -- if manufacturing is a broader category or if it encompasses p-d-r or what the -- >> well, what might be useful now, i look at that number and see if it's a mistake or not because that does look a little odd. the difference between p-d-r and manufacturing and manufacturing is
and some of the controls adding to the plang code, give overview of controls for land use like retail and housing and office and look at the intraim corridor and speak briefly about the administrative code amendments and overview of implementation within the planned area in terms of impact fees. so to begin and that's washed out there. i hope that you can see it better on your screens but the maps are in the packet also. this is the current zoning within western soma and you can sees since this was put in place in the plan and harrison street on the middle is essentially the spine. there is a somewhat different character north and south of harrison street that is strongly related to the presence of the freeway which somewhat kind of disconnects the neighborhood there. all of these districts are what are considered soma mixed use districts, and generally north of harrison street where you see a lot -- on this map at least, yellows and greens, but generally mixed use and includes housing and south of harrison street where you have sli primarily housing is extremely limited only to

in terms of requiring for some home buyer education, creating -- now we'd like to have the conditional use authorization and the pricing and we'd like to bring in down payment assistance. we have money from the state that will soon be gone. we always try to layer. we work closely with our lenders. we only work with approved lenders that come to our office for training. we give them a list of every single financial layering they should look into from their buyer, everything from the state, everything from the city, everything. if you're a teacher you should get this, if you're a police officer you should get this. we're doing the best we can to reach out. there is more we can do more than we're doing because it is not as diverse. the income levels tend to be not at the top. they're 10% below whatever the maximum is for the unit. people are able to bring in down payment assistance and still qualify for our program. that's usually when we more down payment assistance available. so, we're always hoping we can have more or a dedicated source. i think that makes a big difference. our pricing mec

one that we are in will also prove to be a relatively calm one for us. the money that we spent goes primarily to salary and fringe benefit and 13 percent goes to paying the salary and benefits of other employees in the city, other work orders that we have, city attorney costs, the sfgtv and other it personnel that provide support to the website. >> and you just pay contributions for the benefits? >> we pay and give a contribution to the departments and basically pay for the services. >> it is not a line item in our budget that it is our particular fringe benefits. it is just a work order money. that is the biggest chunk of our budget, we also have 4 percent for infrastructure and the two percent for the services that we use from outside vendors and the interpreters and the neighborhood prep people and about a one and a half percent for materials and supplies. we are just about a third of wait through, just a little more than a third of the way through the current budget year and we have already collected about a little more than a third of our projected revenue, so i am as i said op
and recall us having been in 2005. in terms of -- the best way i can respond to the preponderance or not of families living in downtown hi rises is probably one hawthorn which is a project that my company developed and has 165 residential units and it's anecdotal information and not just speak for example art stone and i have provided to my partners. we have approximately five families -- i think the definition of families parents with children living in the 165 unit high rise building. 10 units remain unsold but it can't skew the mix too much and the preponderance of the units are primary residents. they're not investor units. i don't know if i can shed anymore light on the question. >>i think you answered it and certainly sounds based on your experiences with hawthorn this is the best you feel that would work best for you and i am certainly supportive, and obviously these units are condo mapped so in the future they had to be sold they could be sold, and i really complement you also on the design -- redesign with an outstanding architectural firm and improvement on the ori

plan obviously gives us dimensional ideas. however, what this thing will look like on the outside is unclear to me. the reason why i'm asking that question is that several months ago we approved a project and when it was built the community came to us and said that they were very, very disturbed about what they thought we approved and what they got was completely different. that speak to the height of the sign, the location of the sign and a little bit concerned that the current glazing is more like the opaque, looks like your sunglasses type glazing. i had hoped that there would be more disclosure relative to transparent glass, some understanding of a friendly face to the neighbors. signage which does not overwhelm an 11 foot 6 facade and on and on and on. so, i think i need a little bit more information to be supportive of this project. i am understanding of the difficulties of seven years of an empty space. however, what i am approving here does not have the type of disclosure i'm looking for. >> commissioner, it's my understanding they don't plan to make many changes to the st

using your can calculations because you're already down pricing it to fit into the category as it is. if the unit would normally be $600,000, you're probably selling it for 200,000. i'm just throwing out some numbers, but, you know, that may be an exaggeration. but let's say 500,000 or 250, perhaps. is it thectionv there a way to still price it at what would be the right price and they could continue work out some kind of financing structure work there? payments would be aloe questionvthctionv don't what they're paying in rents or close it it, but it would be spread out over a longer period of time so their sale price ends up being more in keeping with what everyone else is getting the ownership unit for. >> should the unit go from receiptctional owner and priced at the ownership level, that would still be at the below market rate -- [multiple voices] >> yes. >> i don't know. it's an interesting concept. we can review it. >> not being discriminatory, but someone is coming in to buy a unit under the ownership. and if there is one being converted, that person who is currently in there
